United take on Reading this weekend with the aim of stopping the rot we had to endure last week. Getting knocked out of the Champions League by Real Madrid before blowing a 2-0 lead against Chelsea made for a pretty depressing couple of games.

VIEW FROM THE ENEMY: Chelsea Fan On Benitez, Signing Van Persie and Abramovich’s Mistakes

You would imagine that Sir Alex Ferguson will channel all the frustration from Tuesday’s unjust result against Real Madrid in to Sunday’s Cup game against Chelsea.

Whilst it was the 4-4 game against Everton that really cost us the title last season, the 1-0 defeat to Wigan when they were enjoying top form, certainly didn’t help. What was usually a guaranteed three points, often after a 4-0 win, was a game that saw our grip on the title loosen. Alan Moore [...]
